Highrise Accommodation at Langley
Highrise Accommodation at Langley
One of Europe's largest council housing estates, Langley was originally purchased by Manchester Corporation to establish a reservoir. The development of water resources in the Lake District made such a scheme unnecessary and Langley was used to re-house the thousands of people made homeless by the Manchester's post-war slum clearance programme.
